    Legend has it that Édith Piaf was born under a lamppost on the steps of Rue de Belleville!
    Today, green amenities, topped by Parc de Belleville, are the common ground for all
    residents of this colourfully visual, tasting and sounding, multi-ethnic neighbourhood.

With an astonishing 98-foot waterfall, the steeply sloping Parc des Buttes-Chaumont is one of the most surprising green spaces in the city, and one of the finest panoramic views of the city can be had from the upper edge of Parc de Belleville (higher than Montmartre!).

While the neighbourhood revolves physically around both parks, culturally it has evolved from a working-class neighbourhood to one with a cornucopia of French and ethnic groups that impacts on all the senses of daily life – the smells and tastes of indigenous and ethnic ingredients from the food stores and restaurants, and the sights and sounds of street art and music, pervade the contrasting big open spaces and small charming streets around the market on Boulevard de Belleville.
